Gayfeather, Liatris spicata, is an exotic perennial bearing long-lasting spikes of deep magenta bottle-brush flowers in contrast with strappy green leaves. It's perfect for adding late-summer colour to an herbaceous border, and makes an excellent cut flower. It's extremely attractive to bees and butterflies.
For best results grow Liatris spicata in well-drained soil in full sun. Propagate by division in spring.
